, a last effort to get out the vote. steve brown is in columbus this afternoon. steve, when ohio starts reporting their numbers, those will be early votes, favoring the president. do we have a sense of how much an edge he has from the early voting numbers? >>guest: analysis of the early voting is by the counties in which they were cast. you do not register as a democrat or a republican in this state so they do not have a good handle on can democrats or republicans early voted. but the former g.o.p. chairman in ohio looked at the distribution and he likes what he sees in terms of, perhaps, good news for governor romney. have a listen. >> if you look at the early vote in the counties that obama won in 2008, early vote is up 3 percent. if you look at the early vote town out in counties that were won by john mccain in 2008, it is up 14 percent. that is an advantage for governor romney. >> but he and other republicans in the state say definitely obama will start the night off with a lead when ohio starts reporting. >>shepard: we can get a sense of ohio in the early going after the polls clos
